Why down vote is soo easy?!by gmpassos (Priest)

Recently seems that down vote a node becomes more and more common. Seems that is much more easy to say, hummm, this is not good enough, and vote --.
Well, I'm one of the monks that think that just a reply is good enough, that just know that the other monk spent some time in the problem is good enough.
Actually I only vote when I think that the node is really interesting, and I only make down vote when I see some flame node, some one that forgot the spirit of the monastery. I don't spent my time voting and voting just to win some XP, I prefer to write something.
The worst thing is that seems that if you down vote, you also can win XP, and some peoples only make the --.
Soo, where's the spirit of help, the spirit of who want's to share knowledge. I think that some monks need to know that is not in any place that we can find knowledge for free, actually in most place we need to pay a lot for any knowledge. PerlMonks is a great, greate and grate place to get, share and create knowledge about Perl.
I know that we have a lot of good monks, but somes are around the monastery just taking care about XP, -- & ++.
For me XP can be banned from the monastery, or some new policy need to be created. Like remove the winning of XP on --, and a list of the monks that doesn't do the right thing, since the impunity of no one know what you do is creating a problem and is contributing to make PerlMonks less that what it really is.
